Hair Loss


An autoimmune condition resulting in hair loss. The immune system of the body mistakenly stops hair growth for unknown reasons. Hair loss may be patchy or sparse and may involve the rest of the body in addition to the scalp. Hair in most people spontaneously regrows, though recurrences of the condition are also typical. Genetic and environmental factors play a role in hair loss; the condition may be seasonal as well.

Hereditary thinning or baldness, is the most common cause of hair loss. When men have hereditary hair loss, a receding hairline is common as well as hair loss on top of the scalp. Women tend to keep their hairline and have visible thinning over the front and top of the scalp. About 80 million men and women in the United States have hair loss due to hereditary thinning or baldness.

Other Common Causes of Hair Loss

Hair loss can be a symptom of an underlying disease and can often be stopped or reversed, once that disease is properly diagnosed and treated. Two common conditions are thyroid disease and anemia. Ringworm of the scalp, a contagious fungal disease can cause balding and scaling of the scalp. Certain forms of radiation and chemotherapy cause temporary hair loss.

Too much can lead to hair loss. Once this is corrected, normal hair growth resumes.

If you are not eating enough protein, your body will conserve it by shifting hair growth into a resting phase until it begins to receive the proper amount. If you are vegetarian or vegan, increase your intake by adding more nuts, seeds and beans to your diet. Good meat sources are oysters, clams and organ meats.

Good vegetarian sources of iron are soybeans, pumpkin seeds, lentils, white beans and spinach. Sauteing your food in a black iron skillet helps increase iron intake. Stress Make Your Hair Fall Out?

Although your hair is falling out all the time, to the tune of 50 to 120 strands per day, it's possible that you may lose a few more strands when you're "catastrophically" stressed, meaning you have had a major life change such as a divorce, lost job, or surgery, says Gerome Litt, M.D., an assistant professor of dermatology at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine in Cleveland. Other culprits are pregnancy or antibiotics. After a few weeks, it will almost certainly grow back."

Excess shedding can be caused by a nutritional deficiency. Iron, zinc, vitamin D, and protein are critical. Taking supplements and improving your diet will usually stop the shedding, and the hair will return to a normal growth cycle. See your doctor and have blood work done to determine your vitamin deficiencies and hormone levels.

Check the common side effects of your medications. Common ones include blood thinners, chemotherapy, and blood pressure meds.

Temporary hair loss is common after child birth and menopause due to falling estrogen levels.

The diameter if the hair shaft diminishes as we get older. That means you may have the same number of follicles, but thinner individual strands will make it look like there's less volume. These strands are also more prone to breakage and since growth slows as you age, the damage becomes more obvious. Even if you do see extra hair loss in your brush or shower drain, you may not need to worry. Shedding 100 strands per day is normal, and of course, if you do not wash your hair every day, then on the days that you do, you will see considerably more hair loss. If you are losing more than that, then see your dermatologist. The problem could be related to declining estrogen levels, stress, low thyroid or iron deficiency.
